I stayed for the Mayday bank holiday weekend.
The hotel is about five to ten minutes walk from the railway station and five to ten minutes walkfrom the East Gate to the historic centre of Chester. You can also get to the City Walls by walking along the canal. The hotel is a confusingly laid out complex on two sides of the canal, connected by an internal footbridge.
The bedroom was fair sized, but with concrete beams at the walls that made it feel low. Soft bed. Large modern wall-mounted. Television with over 10 channels. Iron and ironing board. Trouser press. No fridge. Tea and coffee making facilities. Reasonable lighting. Thin curtains that let in the light - if you need darkness to sleep this is going to mean an early start to the day. It was quiet.
Bathroom OK, reasonable lighting, uninspired but adequate toiletries.
Breakfast was a reasonable buffet: choice of cereals, fruit, cooked, croissant and toast. The breakfast room apparently gets busy between 09.00 and 10.00 at weekends. Management's response is to leave notes under doors advising guests to get there early. While the thin curtains meant that I did so, it does not really seem to be a positive response to the problem. Pop music radio in the breakfast room added to the feeling that this was a bit of a cafeteria operation where they wanted to get you in and out.
Reception, waiting staff all friendly enough and efficient.
